Horch
HORCH TYPE 853

Sports cabriolet.

Fiedler/Schleicher designs with single ohc, massive ten-bearing crankshafts, all-independent suspension and superb elegance if you like the German idiom. Very solidly built. Straight-eight permutations seemlingly limitless, but 853s have hydraulic servo brakes and four-speed overdrive 'boxes, late ones with synchro on all ratios. A dry weight of well over 5000lbs does not, however, make for sparkling performance.
